Coachella 2013 - Apollo RV Experience

|We're back from Coachella 2013 and needless to say we're exhausted and very proud of the work we did out there. This was an entirely new Coachella experience for the FM 94/9 crew. The typical move for most radio stations is to rent a big, cushy house and wait for the artists to come to them. We wanted to try something different this year and it was incredible. We had an RV, courtesy of Apollo RV and we posted up right in artist parking and had several of the festival's biggest acts come to our RV to do interviews, grab a beer and a burger and talk about their experience. Every single band that came through was beyond stoked about it. They didn't have to load up into a car, fight Coachella traffic, figure out gate codes, etc. They came to us and relaxed in comfort with us. It was really my first experience in an RV and I have to tell you, taking one of those things on a self-drive holiday is definitely in my plans. We'd sit outside under the awning and play guitar, hang out and cook. It was really something special. It was also a place of rest and respite for us, a place to come and lay down and catch some z's before the next interview. This is definitely something we'll repeat and that I highly recommend. Thank you to Apollo RV and to all the artists who came by and hung out with us!
